Applauncher consists of 5 servicemenu files which enable starting programs from
the context menu of konqueror. There are versions for KDE 3.5 and KDE 4.

1) "launch_x_executable.desktop" launches executable files:
- start: Launches apps which need no parameters to start.If shared libaries
are missing or aren`t in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH first an error
message is shown and afterwards the missing shared libraries.
- start -> second try: If normal start failed this shows error messages or
missing parameters (aside from: "floating-point
- show help -> -help : Shows helptext if parameter of application is "-help".
- show help -> --help: Shows helptext if parameter of application is "--help".
- show help -> --help-all: Shows helptext if parameter of application is "--help-all".
- show dependencies: Shows shared libaries needed by the application.

2) "launch_x_shellscript.desktop" launches shell scripts with or without konsole.
3) "launch_x_jar.desktop" launches java applications.
4) "konsole_directory.desktop" opens konsole for selected folder.
5) "permissions.desktop" allows you to change permissions of selected file and folders
also recursively.

Installation by script:

(1) With the script "install_applauncher.sh" (command "sh install_applauncher.sh") you can choose between
four types of installation: local (kde 3.5) , local (kde 4) , systemwide (kde 3.5) and systemwide (kde 4).
(2) The script "kubuntu_install_applauncher.sh" (command "sh Kubuntu_install_converter.sh")
installs converter on Kubuntu and uses "kdesudo" instead of "kdesu".

Uninstall by script:

(1) The script "uninstall_applauncher.sh" (command "sh uninstall_applauncher.sh") removes all files of your
converter-installation. First you have to choose your installation type.
(2) The script "kubuntu_uninstall_applauncher.sh" (command "sh Kubuntu_uninstall_applauncher.sh")
uninstalls converter on Kubuntu and uses "kdesudo" instead of "kdesu".

I see you have googleearth. Does it crash on you? Mine starts but after it loads, it crashes. I've cleared the cache but it doesn't help.

And thanks for the servicemenus!

In my experience it works on SUSE LINUX 10.1 (i586) .
I think you need 512 MB or 1 GB RAM minimum.

For this problem you can consult:

I have 4 gigs of ram and an ATI video card running the 3d driver perfectly.
The crash happens on most distros I've tested including open SuSe.

Maybe its the version?
Checking into that.
Thanks for the link and the answer.

I tested GoogleEarth with

SUSE LINUX 10.1 (i586)
KDE-Version: 3.51 Level "a"
Linux Kernel
RAM 250 MB

and it works, although it is slow
because of only 250 MB RAM.

 run script

launch_x_shellscript.desktop must not "Exec = sh% u" but "Exec = konsole-e sh" run because you can not see what else the script makes.

Otherwise very good

Excuse my English

Thank´s for your advice.
If the stdouts and stderrs are important for you change the script to "konsole -e sh".

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
